Ingredients

3 tablespoons Flora 100% Pure Olive Oil

1 lb hot turkey or pork sausage, casings discarded and sausage crumbled

1/2 lb kale, tough stems and center ribs discarded and leaves coarsely chopped

1 lb Flora Egg Fettuccine Homestyle Pasta

2/3 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

1 oz finely grated Pecorino Romano (1/2 cup) plus additional for serving

 

Directions:

Heat oil in a 12-inch heavy skillet over moderately high heat until hot but not smoking, then cook sausage, breaking up any lumps with a spoon, until browned, 5 to 7 minutes.

Meanwhile, blanch kale in a 6-quart pot of boiling salted water , uncovered, 5 minutes. Remove kale with a large sieve and drain. Return cooking water in pot to a boil, then cook pasta in boiling water, uncovered, until al dente. Reserve 1 cup pasta-cooking water, then drain pasta in a colander.

While pasta cooks, add kale to sausage in skillet and sauté, stirring frequently, until just tender, about 5 minutes. Add broth, stirring and scraping up any brown bits from bottom of skillet, then add pasta and 1/2 cup reserved cooking water to skillet, tossing until combined. Stir in cheese and thin with additional cooking water if desired.

Serve immediately, with additional cheese on the side.
